We are delighted to announce that the Faculty of Philosophy of Universitas Gadjah Mada will host the (online) 10th International Conference on Nusantara Philosophy. The conference will bring theme  "The Role of Social Epistemology and Ontology for The Future of Humanity”. The conference aims to explore, discuss and seek framework in understanding and exploring the discourse on the study of philosophy which will be expanded into cross-disciplinary scientific references, in Indonesian and global contexts. The Conference brings together theoretical exploration, observation, studies and research on issues related to the construction of knowledge and the fabrication of things.

The accepted and presented papers will be submitted for possible inclusion to proceedings that are indexed by Crossref/Dimensions/DOAJ/Google Scholar.


One of the keys to social justice is the recognition principle. This is because, with recognition, various non-mainstream social entities can be introduced to public discourse and, with certain movements, legally protected by the law. For example, to protect ‘Adat’ (customary) lands from corporate threats, we need to acknowledge that these indigenous peoples exist and are real as a social group. Otherwise, we will lose the tools to protect the land and the people.
